A House divided was a speech that was given after his nomination to be a state senator by the Republican Party at the Illinois State Capital. In this speech, he clearly states something that he had always held to be true – that the United States could not let its political differences divided. What differentiated this speech from former speeches was in his ambiguity toward slavery. Rather than speaking out against it, Abraham Lincoln said that the entire nation must either oppose or abolish it for the good of the country’s political standing.

Author Bio: Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the US through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crises—the American Civil War—preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, strengthening the national government, and modernizing the economy. Reared in a poor family in rural Indiana, he was a self-educated man. In the 1830s he became a country lawyer, a Whig Party leader, and Illinois state legislator. He later served as a one-term member of the House of Representatives during the 1840s.
